Broken Narratives

We attach ourselves to certain objects, applying sentimental value to them. From new artifacts to passed down through the family, we naturally build narratives for these objects that can bring us joy and comfort.

In partnership with Corian DuPont, as part of a brief to create a design which showcases an aesthetic / conceptual / functional bond between Corian and one other material. The concept developed was a service of transforming someone´s beloved broken crockery into a unique and functionally co-designed and re-evaluated piece, by using thin Corian as a molding agent, bonding with the crockery.

The result was an exercise that highlights our sense of worth and longevity to our possessions, questioning our ever growing consumerist and throw-away culture
